A fine dram to start off a tasting, but not enough interest to engage you the whole night long.
Berrys' Own Selection
Berry Bros. & Rudd
Lowland, 12 Years Old
Nose: Lemony, doughy and floral. Orange blossom and warm bread.
Palate: A rounded maltiness and a little ripe fruitiness.
Finish: Drying, earthy and slightly bitter. Not its strong point.
Comment: A fine dram to start off a tasting, but not enough interest to engage you the whole night long.
Nose: Light, floral and a little dumb. Butter (unsalted!), scone mix, a hint of jasmine, broom flower (pea pod) slightly immature. In time, damp washing, putty, earth (a little grubby).
Palate: Light, muscat like, delicate. A hint of sweetness in the centre but pretty ethereal stuff. You feel it could blow away like a dandelion fluff.
Finish: Slightly green. Sugary.
Comment: Just needs a middle palate lift...and a bit more mature stock vatted in?
